Forgot A Title - Age of Ultron & Other Stuff

Went to see Age of Ultron last night. I enjoyed the hell out of it, although I'll say it wasn't nearly as good as the first movie - but there was some good snarky banter, lots of lovely Hawkeye (where IS the Hawkeye movie?!?), and Ultron makes a pretty lame villain but was saved through the brilliant casting of James Spader as his voice. That man can really deliver dialogue (especially when the dialogue is this good - really, Whedon can write dialogue like no one else).

As a consequence, though, I wandered through the day like a zombie on 4 hours' sleep. I can't do this kind of stuff like I could when I was younger...


It annoys me that I can't find proper embed codes for videos I see on Facebook. I still don't LIKE Facebook, mind you, but I find I spend a lot of time there. And while my Twitter feed posts across all the social media, Facebook is not so considerate. Anyway, I saw a great video there I was going to save/share here, but I can't get it to work. So it goes.

Regarding the Amtrak crash, I say again: Americans have to do an end-run around the Republican Congress and open a freaking Kickstarter to rebuild American infrastructure. That way we can pay all the taxes we WANT to pay and they will go where we want them to go and pay for what we want them to pay for. Get those Kickstarters going, for the Department(s) of Transportation and education and welfare programs!

I slept for three hours this afternoon when I got home from work. I hope I can thus sleep tonight. Tomorrow's Friday, whoo hoo.
